WANTED POSTERS: Hendrix, Dylan, and The Greatful Dead: Andrew Hawley Hunts Down Rare Rock 'n Roll Posters
The Rolling Stones at Memorial Auditorium (1964). Jimmy Hendrix playing the HIC Arena in Honolulu in 1968. The Grateful Dead at Trouper's Club in Los Angeles (1966).
Posters for these concerts and hundreds of others featuring rock 'n roll legends of the 1950s and 1960s were never intended to last. Which is why today's hardcore collectors will pay thousands of dollars to acquire the few concert promotions that have survived the decades.
If you love the early pioneers of rock music, you won't want to miss this week's edition of Monday Morning Radio, featuring Andrew Hawley, a rock historian who makes his living trading vintage rock concert posters and related ephemera.
Hawley's Vintage Rock Posters is a niche business, but one that reinforces the notion that personal passions and business savvy are not mutually exclusive.
By the way, Hawley will lay down some fast and serious cash if you've got the right memorabilia hanging around your garage or attic. This show could be music to your ears.
Hawley is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart, who along with wealth management expert David Biondo co-hosts the weekly Business Unconventional radio news magazine broadcast on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.
